Art Educator Workshop: Advanced Digital Photography (Summer 2013)
All Art Educator Workshops
This class is a theoretical and technical exploration into the way we utilize the photographic medium. Beyond refreshing creative camera control and lighting techniques, this will be a chance for those already versed in photography to expand their vision.
Intertwining the historical and contemporary makers and thinkers behind the medium, class projects will weave together the many different types of photography. Utilizing programs such as Adobe Photoshop, students will learn unique ways to enhance their images. Digital inkjet output will also be a focus as the line that separates an image from a photograph is growing wider and wider. Through discussions and projects, students will come to understand photography's wonderful, contradictory, turbulent, and expanding realm.
In short, this is a photographic applications class catering to those that wish to include intermediate photographic ideas and processes into their classrooms. As this is not an introductory class, students will be expected to have their own DSLR camera, as well as a proficient understanding its functions. Point-and-shoot cameras will not be adequate, and will not allow you to utilize the material successfully. / This is a digital photography class. Students will not have darkroom access.
What to bring: Digital SLR camera; notebook; pen/pencil.
Recommended textbook: Photography (10th Edition), London, Upton, and Stone (ISBN: 9780205711499).
